Green Building practices are designed to reduce the overall impact of the building on the community and environment through the use of renewable resources. By utilizing energy-efficient, environmentally-friendly construction practices, Green Building owners enjoy a variety of economic, social, and environmental benefits.
The U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) is a non-profit organization working to set green building standards and assist everyone in reaching their green building goals. The USGBC’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System™ increases the global adoption of sustainable green construction development standards by enforcing universally accepted criteria. With multiple levels obtainable, everyone can do their part to uphold their green building responsibilities and reduce their environmental impact. Douglass Colony is no exception; our new main office has achieved LEED Silver certification and is the first LEED certified industrial building in Commerce City, Colorado.
